About the Book - The Place Between

Sarah used to know who she was — a doctor, a wife, a mother — but as she prepares for the birth of her second child, she feels set adrift from the life she had planned. When her mother, Beryl, announces she’s coming to Sydney from Perth, Sarah has to contend with more than her own insecurities. She hasn’t told Beryl she’s pregnant. She isn’t sure why not. Sarah’s secretive betrayal could be the final blow in her already fragile relationship with her mother. 

About the Author

Suzanne Moore began her professional career as a veterinarian. In 2004 she returned to university to study creative writing as an aside to her veterinary career, and the balance of power between hobby and career shifted in favour of her creative pursuit.

After many years cocooned in her study Suzanne emerged rebranded as a writer, obtaining a PhD in creative writing from Murdoch University. During this time, she developed an interest in women’s narratives and time theory while juggling two small children and a household of geriatric pets.
